I have recently realized that a few things have changed. For one thing I am much older than I once was when I could sit and do hand quilting for hours on end, after all I am a Grandma now. Having aquired a massive amount of knowledge (LOL here) in reguards to quilting, I have decided that if you want Aidens quilt before he finishes college that said baby quilt will have to be done by machine.
Having sent this text message to my DD the other day, I waited for her reply, which was:
So now we back up a few weeks here where DD and I were talking about the baby quilt. Apparently my daughter knows enough about quilts to realize there is a difference between quilting a quilt by hand and using a machine. I was asked to make Aidens quilt the old fashioned way. This I assumed ment doing the quilting by hand. I have sense amended this line of thought to "the old fashioned way is whatever way I want to get it done!"
Now I don't want to hear from all the hand quilters about this. I have several UFO's sitting about the house that are waiting to get finished. I have decided that my daughter will receive all said practice quilts as I learn how to use my wonder woman Brother sewing machine and do my sitdown quilting.
DD will be returning to work next month after being home sense Jan. to have Aiden. This little guy sure has been though a lot just getting here and it seems that he has picked up where mom left off at. DD called me last week and wanted me to come over before Aidens doctor appointment. I agreed and the next thing I knew I was accompanying them to the doctor app. Aiden has developed a bad case of acid refux, he keeps most of his bottle down but he spits up quite a bit of it as well. The doctors appointment turned into a trip to the pharmacy then the grocery store and the mall. I had been up sense 3:30 in the am and didn't even get home until after 7:30 that night. Aiden spit up four times that afternoon, on me of course. DD kept appologizing and I kept laughing. This was nothing new to me. I will be sooo glad when DD goes to work and I get a break from visiting everyother day. DD is bored, not with Aiden and taking care of him but being only 2 months old we have to admit he isn't much fun yet.
I was also talked into babysitting the little guy during her first week back at work. DD looked but has yet to find a daycare facility that she would trust with him. Sound familar to anyone? So I get week one of DD going to work, her DH gets week two, then the other grand parents will be over to help for the summer. Anyone care to take bets on how long DD lasts at work before she decides that she can be a stay at home mom? They can afford it, after all SIL is a doctor after all and he has told her she could stay at home.
Now you didn't think I wouldn't post a picture of him did you? This was the week that he was born and I was visiting. I hate having my picture taken but I thought everyone would like to see that I really do get to hold him.
